Wolves' promotion to the Premier League was confirmed on Saturday after Fulham's 1-1 draw with Brentford.

However, Wolves' big spending has provoked complaints for other sides in the league.

Diogo Jota, another of Wolves' Portuguese contingent, had struck after six minutes to launch the leaders towards a win that leaves them two points from sealing promotion, mathematically, to the EPL after a six-year absence.

"Congratulations to the best team but hope the league can be fair and equal to all 24 teams", protested Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani after his side were beaten 3-0 by Wolves last month.

Wolverhampton Wanderers coach Nuno Espirito Santo has warned his players to remain focused as he stands on the verge of ending the club's Premier League exile.

For a while yesterday it looked as if Wolves would have to wait until today, when they play Birmingham City, to go up when Fulham took a 70th-minute lead against Brentford through Aleksander Mitrovic.

The draw leaves Fulham in third, a point off second-placed Cardiff, who have a game in hand.

They now have 92 points with 28 victories and eight draws, with 76 goals scored.
